Conn C Melody, and C Soprano !

Conn C Melody, and C Soprano in the same video.   Some fine playing by Raaf Hekkema.
The sounds of both C saxes fit this style of music well.

    Very nice indeed, but, with reference to the Conn C tenor,not, in my view the role of a sax. He is attempting, successfully, to achieve what is available on a whole range of symphonic instruments….even an oboe would be too edgy.
    I played along with my L&H using an SR 8* mouthpiece & am delighted to say that I could get nowhere near his pure sound. My sound was gritty, earnest & edgy….the PROPER  sound of a sax….. in a late night smoky club…great.
    Please let’s have the right horse for the right course.
